Opening of Diana Policarpo: Nets of Hyphae

Free entry

Join us when Kunsthal Aarhus opens the doors to Diana Policarpo's first solo exhibition at a Danish art institution. At this exhibition opening, we turn up the excitement with an exclusive guided tour by Policarpo herself at 5:30 pm. Refreshing drinks and snacks will be served and we will keep the doors open until 8 pm.

The title of the exhibition, Nets of Hyphae, refers to the thin, underground tissues that allow mushrooms to grow, and which connect them as part of a larger network. Based on the artist’s interest in botanical knowledge and its relation to the human body, the exhibition presents six artworks in different media – sound, video, digital animation, and textiles – that explore issues including women’s sexual health, the right to self-determination in healthcare, the suppression of ancestral knowledge, and health justice.


Diana Policarpo (b. 1986, Portugal) is a visual artist and composer who, through visual and musical media including drawing, video, sculpture, text, performance, and multi-channel sound installation investigates gender politics, economic structures, health, and interspecies relations. Her speculative, transdisciplinary research has resulted in the creation of performances and installations which examine experiences of vulnerability and empowerment which emerge when one exposes oneself to the capitalist world.
